Member of Recruitment Working Group

Description of the role:

Would you like to make a big difference to a local charity working and supporting young people aged from 6 to 18 years old but don’t have much time?

We might have the answer for you!

We’re looking for people with professional skills they’ve picked up in the workplace who can spare the time for 6 meetings a year. We’re setting up a Working Group on Adult Recruitment to facilitate increased and improved recruitment into Leader and Manager roles within Wolsey, which is one of the two Ipswich Scout Districts with Suffolk Scouts. If you have PR or sales skills, or knowledge of HR and recruitment, or experience of social media and communications, or have local business connections, we’d really like to hear from you.

Your professional expertise could guide our recruitment strategy and thus have a real impact on the lives of young people in Ipswich and the skills for life they acquire through Scouting

If you’d like to know more, please contact Alison Nichols, Deputy District Commissioner at alison.nichols@wolseyscouts.org.uk
